After a long time spent stepping down on my antidepressants today I got the OK to stop. Here’s hoping that 2.5 mg isn’t a huge step to 0. I am not a fan of brain zaps or dizziness.
Examining my mood charts from the meditation app that I use, Stop Breathe Think, has been enlightening. A few months ago I would never have chose the emotions that I choose now. I am grateful, happy, relaxed, and focused. Lifting weights has helped with that immensely, as well as acknowledging my emotions and offering them validity (or reconciling with those that may not be quite as valid). I am in control. I feel like I have the power to change things around me and speak up when something isn’t right.
This feeling is good.
